Best Metal Songs
The Contenders: Page 11
Tool and Metallica are the greatest bands full stop. They just knew when to reign it in. He is so intelligent it is staggering. Metallica are entitled to do whatever they wish, so I defend them no matter what because I love them.
This is my current favorite song! My favorite song changes so much! But, in the end, it always seems to be a Tool song! Tool might be my favorite band, either that or System of a Down. - moose4life19
Prescient, no? You'd better learn to swim now, and leave your copy of 'Aenema' and 'Salival' at home, unless it proves useful in fighting off a Great White Shark once the glaciers melt.V 2 Comments
Good but not enough to top Iron Maiden
I love this song. Certainly deserves to be at the top 20..
It's a tribute to the great Iron Maiden.
Much better than iron maidenV 1 Comment
BEST SONG EVER! Why is song not number 1! Master Of Puppets is nothing compared to... And Justice For All. Metallica's best album and song best song on this list BEST SONG IN THE WORLD
My favourite album.
What the hell, are you people demented? Why is there only one Blind Guardian song on the list? Can you people not see good metal when you hear it? This isn't even Guardian's best song and it's the only one on the list. Any metal list automatically becomes a joke if a Blind Guardian song isn't in the top ten.
Maynard's bank account is evidence enough that this track didn't go un-noticed. And he never sold his soul to make a record, though he says he did. Great track from one of their best albums. I look forward to the new one arriving in the next few-decades.
This is 9 minutes of pure emotion from the moment you feel the loneliness of the opening guitar to Maynard's emotion-filled proclamation of embracing the random and illogical aspects of life. I highly recommend if you're down in the dumps and looking for inspiration.
Tool's Stairway to Heaven. Without doubt one of the greatest metal songs of the 21st century. Too good to go unnoticed
The best song ever! It deserves number 1 not 279! Best drummer, vocalist, and song writer of all time! Vote this higher now!V 2 Comments
It is extremely sad how underrated Opeth, Testament, Annihilator and Death Angel are. This song is incredible. It's talent. It's MUSIC.
Incredible. Enough said
Metallica still got it.
Yes, sinister, morbid, progressive, and an ode to Gein. How I miss this style of Slayer.
Correction. I own so much stuff. Off the Haunting the Chapel ep, it's great.
Live Slayer is Live Slayer. Decades of Aggression is better x 2 cds.
Drums except snare need to go up
The tradionslist don't like them. I don't even know them. It's probably the names of the band members which makes them sound cheesy. In fact it does. Sorry.
Out of the songs on this list, unholy confessions is a margionlised best. Would have gone for nightmare had I have seen it, but this is another of my favourites. Can't believe how few avenged songs are on here though,
We didn't raise our backs and crack our horsewhips, and that is why this song has failed to prevail.
Classic song from a classic metal album "Leviathan".
Curious, noisy racket. Not a big fan.V 2 Comments
Yes, it's the Slayer I fell in love with. It's progressive, technical, lyrically profound, and haunting. I miss their atmospherics of their later output.
Helluva song! A classic to say the least.
People should be ashamed for not voting for thing band and song
I was a bit late with Opeth. They are held in very high regard though.
Midtempo, Brilliant Riff => A song you can never forget
Why is this song so low? This should at least be number 20!
This song is not really great as the one is but shouldn't be here
This should be number one. Why so low? - Disturbedpotato
Why so low?
